VBA: Following Hyperlink that's linked to Sharepoint?

I've got a list of Hyperlinks, that are all files on a sharepoint site. When I click on one, it opens Microsoft Edge and at the bottom asks if I want to open the file. When I click "Open", the file then opens in the appropriate desktop app. I'm wondering if there is a way around Microsoft Edge always asking if I want to open the file.

I'm building a File Search Userform that allows me to search and then open the selected file, but it is pretty inconvenient to have to click "Open" ever time I try to open something. Here is what I've got so far:

Private Sub btn_OpenFile_Click()
    Dim currWKB         As Workbook
    Dim fWKS            As Worksheet
    Dim fCell           As Range
    Dim fNAME           As String
    Set currWKB = ThisWorkbook
    Set fWKS = currWKB.Sheets(1)
    If Me.lb_Files.Text = "" Then
        MsgBox "Please select a file from the List Box that you'd like to open.", vbOKOnly
        Exit Sub
        fNAME = Me.lb_Files.Text
        Set fCell = fWKS.Columns(1).Find(What:=fNAME, LookIn:=xlValues, _
                    SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext)
        If MsgBox(fNAME & " has been opened. Would you like to close the ""Sharepoint Search"" Workbook?" _
                & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & "Clicking No, will keep this file open in the background.", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
            currWKB.Windows(1).WindowState = xlMinimized
        End If
    End If
End Sub
